STUDY DESIGN: Systematic review. OBJECTIVES: We conducted a systematic review of the literature to answer the following questions regarding the use of steroid therapy in metastatic spinal cord compression (MSCC): 1. In cases of MSCC, what is the effect of steroid administration before definitive radiotherapy or surgery on ambulatory status, bowel and bladder function and survival? 2. What steroid dosing regimens are associated with the best outcomes concerning neurological symptoms and complication prevention in cases of MSCC? SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Currently, there is significant variation in the initial bolus dose, daily maintenance dose and duration of treatment when steroids are used as a bridge to definitive therapy for MSCC...

To provide an updated synthesis of the current state of the evidence for the effectiveness of breast-feeding and expressed breast milk feeding in reducing procedural pain in preterm and full-term born infants. A systematic search of key electronic databases (PubMed, CINAHL, EMBASE) was completed. Of the 1032 abstracts screened, 21 were found eligible for inclusion. Fifteen studies reported on the use of breast-feeding or expressed breast milk in full-term infants and 6 reported on preterm infants. Direct breast-feeding was more effective than maternal holding, maternal skin-to-skin contact, topical anesthetics, and music therapy, and was as or more effective than sweet tasting solutions in full-term infants...

BACKGROUND: Mind-body therapies are often used by people with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). However, there has been little examination into which types of mind-body therapies have been investigated for people with ASD and for what purposes. A systematic review was conducted to evaluate the existing evidence for mind-body therapies for people with ASD, particularly to determine the types of mind-body therapies used and the outcomes that are targeted. METHODS: PubMed, PsychInfo, and Scopus were searched using terms for ASD and mind-body therapies...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Spinal cord injury (SCI) involves serious damage that can result in abnormal or absent motor and sensory functions and a disruption of autonomic function, and a series of pathological reactions occur after the injury. As a type of small non-coding RNA, microRNAs (miRNAs) have been verified to inhibit gene expression via posttranscriptional regulation. This review mainly focuses on recent advances regarding the roles of miRNAs following SCI. METHODS: The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines were adopted...

OBJECTIVES: Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) commonly affects men above 40 years old. The progression of BPH is often accompanied with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) that can significantly affect the quality of life of the patients. Serenoa repens (saw palmetto) is a popular herbal remedy indicated for LUTS/BPH. We reviewed the current research on the efficacy of S. repens on LUTS/BPH as a monotherapy as well as combination therapies. DESIGN: Non-systematic searches were performed in PubMed for human studies and systematic reviews on the topic...

In Pakistan, hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a major healthcare problem, with acute and chronic infections responsible for liver damage, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. Under the Human Development Index of the United Nations, Pakistan is ranked 134th of 174 countries due to its poor educational and health standards. This study was designed to study HCV and its genotype prevalence in different cities and provinces of Pakistan and describe the major routes of HCV transmission. Literature searches were performed in PubMed, Mendeley, and Google Scholar...

The aim of this meta-analysis was to assess the methionine synthase reductase (MTRR) gene 66A>G polymorphism and male infertility susceptibility. Studies were identified in PubMed and Embase databases. An odds ratio (OR) was used to assess the relationship between MTRR 66A>G polymorphism and male infertility risk. A total of seven case-control studies containing 1438 patients and 1363 controls were enrolled in the meta-analysis. Our results showed that no association exists between the MTRR 66A>G polymorphism and male infertility risk in the total population (GG vs...

BACKGROUND: Renal anastomosing hemangioma (RAH) is a very rare distinct entity composed of anastomosing sinusoidal (spleen-like) capillary-sized vessels lined by flat or hobnail endothelial cells. Most of the published cases of RAH occurred in the setting of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). METHODS: We present 2 cases of RAH in ESRD along with a literature review. We compared clinicopathologic features of RAHs in end-stage and non-end-stage kidneys. A meta-analysis was conducted with PubMed and a manual search through references of relevant publications...

BACKGROUND: The clinical significance of miR-141-3p in hepatocellular carcinoma has not been verified. Therefore, we conducted this study to examine miR-141-3p expression and its clinical significance in hepatocellular carcinoma and to investigate the functions of its potential targets. METHODS: The Cancer Genome Atlas database and the Gene Expression Omnibus database were used to explore the aberrant expression of miR-141-3p in hepatocellular carcinoma. Furthermore, we assessed the miR-141-3p levels in 95 hepatocellular carcinoma tissues with 95 matched adjacent tissues using real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction...
